    I just checked and the 30si with transformer rectifier is available. My cost is a little under $300 new so you have the same money in your setup. If you are going to be running a lot of 24 volt equipment you are better off with a 24 volt alternator.

    Its a clone, I noted that in my thread. WAI 7256N, you may also find it listed as WPS (World Power Systems) which is a WAI brand. I did a quick google search and came up with 4 or 5 different listings.

    Thanks. I was using the Delco number to find the clone equivalent. The wilson built unit is $320 thru napa if you have an account. Doesnt seem too bad.

    Threw some belts on the alternator to see what it was doing and to test the new gauge. Looks like nothing much happening with it.

    Installed a boost gauge in place of the original volt gauge spot.

    Replaced the solenoid in the dash with a John Deere # RE170320 i had on the shelf for a while now and keep the old one as a spare.

    Had to fix a leaking wheel O ring so i checked the brakes as well and they look fine. Did adjust all of them as well.

    Measured for 2 of the beacon light plates going to add to also hold rear backup lights as well

    Welp. went ahead and figured the alternator issue out. Since someone is a complete moron and installed a 24v AC unit in this truck that pulls around 16amps on max blower. Along with the compressor pulling some amps. Basically the reason I am going to assume that this truck was put out of commission was because it was killing the batteries in the summertime and they could not figure out why. The AC was installed in July 2014 around the time they said it was parked. So yeah. we are going to go with that..... Threw a 30Si with the transformer on it that Tow4 suggested. and it can't even keep up on 24v with the AC on high really. Dash gauge drops to 23.8 at the starter switch reading and battery/alternator are both reading 25.7 so it is struggling.

    So the choices will be to just run the AC on 12v and rewire it or go to the 100amp 24v alternator and the equalizer. Or swap the AC unit out for a 12v MCC unit.

    Alternator wires just aren't big enough to sustain the power draw either.

    Always something but just retarded that they used a 24v unit on a predominantly 12v truck.

    Off to my next quest of crap for the day.

    I thought that A/C unit was another RRAD disaster?

    Dont think so. its got a homemade bracket on it. and the AC is a Visionaire out of Ft. Worth. It is non adjustable and not a Red Dot unit.
